Rating: rated 2 of 5 stars
Materials: Leather
Use: trail/moderate load
Break-in Period: two weeks around town and what not
Price Paid: $189

At first I was delighted with these boots, however the pleasure soon turned to pain! Both pair on the right inside heel (heel cup) had a severe "bump" or rather what felt like a couple of pebbles embedded in the lining; BLISTER CITY! This problem manifested only a few days into the breaking in period and never went away.

I must say $189 is way too much for these boots that I can't see lasting more than a season. Simply put, the boot should cost nearly half as much.
